‘I’ve never felt better’ — Jordan Eberle

There is still a month left in another long off-season, which is far too long as far as Jordan Eberle is concerned. One of the longest-serving players on the Edmonton Oilers’ roster, Eberle said on Tuesday that he is increasingly anxious to get back at it. He is leaner, quicker and fitter than he has been since he played his first full NHL season in 2010-11. “I’ve never...

Oilers kick assistant GM out of clown car

The horrifying Edmonton Oilers just get worse and worse. For fans of the team, this has got to be so frustrating. For a blogger who is a self-proclaimed anarchist and lives for sarcasm, I can't imagine blogging for any other team. This just keeps getting worse than worse. A few days ago I ran a story about three Oilers players - Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan...

Breaking News: Oilers Young Guns snub Team Canada

During the last year, Hockey Canada worked hard to recruit a team that would eventually win the Olympic gold medal. This is no thanks to Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, who at no time during the process were even considered as potential roster players for Team Canada. Taylor Hall in particular took the news hard. While the Oilers were brutal in 2013/2014, Hall...

Edmonton Oilers finally wake up

Too bad the Edmonton Oilers waited so long to play to their ability.With the help of improved goaltending by newcomer Ben Scrivens, the Men of Oil went on a 10-4-3. At least they can carry that success forward.“Absolutely, we started 4-15-2 to start the season and you look at right now, we’re a .500 team,” winger Jordan Eberle told the Edmonton Sun. “If things were different...

Preds lose big in Edmonton

  Preds got scored on by 4 different first round draft picks, including two first overall picks, last night in their matchup against the Oilers, in a game that I like to dub the Devan Dubnyk Sweepstakes.  Nashville allowed a late goal in a closely fought first period, where Preds were the better team, which lead to their eventual demise. Rinne had an uncharacteristically...

Oilers look for successful run down the stretch, even if the playoffs are not in sight

As Jordan Eberle fixed his eyes on what remains of another lost season, he concluded that the objective for the Edmonton Oilers was pretty clear cut: Tomorrow begins today. That seemed to be the consensus as the Oilers emerged from their post-Olympic mini-camp with no playoff possibilities. “The way we’re looking at it is that we have 22 games to put us into a position where...

‘Entergized’ Eberle, other Oilers players return to the rink after their Olympic break

Whether it was too much holiday sun, the result of a gruelling back-to-work fitness test or a combination of both, there were so many red faces at Rexall Place Wednesday it looked like they just had a tomato fight. There were a lot of smiles, though. While almost every NHL player dreams of being in the Olympic tournament, getting 12 days off in the middle of the season to kick...

Jordan Eberle hears the rumours. The Edmonton Oilers winger has seen his name come up as a key to solving the team’s struggles by being attractive trade bait.
